ALBANY – An Amsterdam woman has been arrested, accused of receiving child pornography from a child using a social media messaging application, federal prosecutors said.
Kristen Blair Hiltunen, 36, of Amsterdam, appeared in federal court Wednesday on a charge of receiving child pornography, officials said.
She is accused of using the social media messaging application to communicate with and receive child pornography from the minor victim in July, prosecutors said.
If convicted of the charge, she would face up to 20 years in prison, officials said.
Hiltunen was ordered detained until at least Monday, when a detention hearing is scheduled, officials said.
The case was investigated by the FBI and its Child Exploitation Task Force, along with investigators from the Schenectady Police Department.
